opening up a five-point lead for president obama. the swing states are the most important. we'll get polling on that soon as well, but it looks like there was definitely a bounce in the polls for president obama after the convention. during our coverage on current eliot spitzer predicted a four-point bump. i predicted five. vice president gore, six to eight. it looks like the democratic convention went off better than the republican one if you look at the polls. now that the conventions are over, mitt romney as usual getting himself in more and more trouble. so they're answering the question. you got to under something. mitt romney's tax plan is a disaster for the budget. it would create giant deficits. how can you say you can fight deficits if your plan creates bigger deficits. he says, no, no, i'm going to get rid of the loopholes. >> give me an example of a loophole that you'll close. >> romney: people at high end taxpayers will have fewer deductions and exemptions. those numbers will come down. >> i'm cutting tax on the rich massively, but some of the loopholes i might take away
. president obama and prime minister netanyahu attended the united nations general assembly in new york, but at different times. the white house insisted it was a scheduling issue, not a snub. no meetings, no handshakes. but today a follow-up phone call that a senior administration official told cnn lasted more than 20 minutes. in a statement released by the white house, the conversation included "a range of security issues," the president reaffirmed his commitment to israel security. and the two leaders were in full agreement on preventing iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. prime minister netanyahu has been pressuring the u.s. to lay down a so-called red line on iran that would prompt military action. at the u.n. he used a prop to drive home his point. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: while some have accused the prime minister of pressuring the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. political calendar. the white
machine, and was taking on john mccain. at that point the obama posters were fresh and new, hadn't faded yet. to some degree we're going to be remind the of the 2008. the comparisons will be made. i don't think there's going to be the same excitement in the convention hall for barack obama that there was last time around. people are going to be asking why that is, and it's going to have something to do with the obama record. it's going to have something to do with the way he's conducted his presidency. that's something democrats are going to have to explain. >> 30 seconds. >> the president was not challenged in the primaries. a new president seeking re-election. if he wins, he will be for the second time truly historic. the last time we elected with an employment rate above as it raying raying. it dropped continuously the year before. a plummet raise has not dropped. it's ticked upped in recent months. if president obama winds, it will be because of demographic shifts, his ability to persuade voters. it's better than the alternative. be historic. >> we will see you both in charlotte. c-s
and the obama campaign to have vice president joe biden mark the day in a way that was not political. it was just about remembering the people who were lost that day and commemorating the sacrifices people have made in this country because of 9/11. while both sides in the presidential campaign suspended their negative ads for the day out of respect for the anniversary, there's no ban on campaigning today. there's no rule about what you can and cannot do. mitt romney gave a speech today before the national guard association in reno, nevada, and at times it sounded like his normal stump speech. he did go out of his way to attack president obama for defense cuts that are part of the sequester deal. which incidentally, are cuts that paul ryan voted for in congress. that's the kind of thing he's been stay save saying on the stump. after a week and a half of bipartisan blistering criticism of mr. romney for leaving discussion of the war in afghanistan out of his speech accepting the normal mination for president in tampa, paul ryan didn't mention the war if his speech either. but after fac
tonight capped off of course by president obama. the star last night absolutely goes to bill clinton. take a look at this. >> the republican argument against the president reelection is actually pretty simple pretty snappy. it went something like this. we left him a total mess. he hasn't cleaned it up fast enough. so fire him and put us back in. [ cheers and applause ] >> clinton spoke for nearly an hour, and as usual he did write the speech himself, but much of what he said was off of the cuff. and if you were wondering where hilary clinton was her secretary of state duties have her literally a world away. she is standing in for president obama at the economic cooperation forum leader this week. this is the first democratic national convention she missed in four decades. take a look at this here is a great photo showing mrs. clinton catching up on the dnc. has bill clinton spoke last night, hashtag 2016 was one of the most popular. we'll be back after the break. for more online go to current.com/stephaniemiller. this year the presidential campaigns are running a re

obama the democrat. at the moment, the president has the edge, a number of reasons why. majority, 51-46. close, but advantage to the president. one of the reasons why. you ask likely voters who attended college, 52% for president obama. we have to match those up as those who describe themselves as moderates. 58% describe themselves as moderates. they tend to live in the suburbs. an important advantage for the president. taxes part of the economic debate. not all bad for governor romney. state of florida, more from our most recent poll. older voters, tend to be more reliable. voters 50 years of age and older. again, more reliable voting group. 54% support governor romney. 42% for president obama, obviously, jobs number one part of the economy. on taxes, at the moment, an advantage for the president. >> governor romney has been criticized by fellow republicans by not raising out enough specifics. what loopholes he would close. how has the campaign been responding to that? >> mitt romney has suggested on a number of occasions that he would limit some of the mortgage deductions from high

, not here in lower manhattan or shanksville, pennsylvania, or the pentagon where@obama and top commanders laid a wreath this morning. the legacy of 9/11 is still being felt on memory, not as history but as current events. the war launched to avenge attacks still being fought. the wounds include real, physical, life-changing injuries. when a story comes out that devil delves into whether these entire 11 years of anguish might have been avoided in some way it obviously touches a nerve. the fact that it came out on the 9/11 anniversary, in the heat of an election campaign have led some to call it a political hatchet job. it is not our intention to look at this through a partisan lens, only to lay out the claims and counter claim that is we know. the story in a nutshell centerson what president bush and other top officials knew before this unforgettable moment when the president was informed of the attacks. kurt eickenwald lays it down in a "the new york times" op-ed, entitled "the deafness before the storm." it was published today. it was dated august 6, 2001, entitled "bin laden determined
. under the leadership of president obama and the international community, the united nations has put them under some of the strongest sanctions today. oil exports have been correct. the iranian economy has been hit hard. it does have an effect on the economy. we must face the truth. sanctions have not stopped iran's nuclear program. according to the international atomic energy agency, during the last year alone, iran has doubled the number of energy uses in its underground nuclear facility. at this late hour, there is only one way to peacefully prevent iran from getting atomic bombs, and that is by placing a clear nucleare on iran's weapons program.

that president obama sent a red line to iran and are you saying you think that's a mistake? >> trudy rubin, the "philadelphia inquirer." follow it onto marcus question, i would like to ask you what you feel the predominate feeling is inside the israeli security about what is the real nature of the threat that iran presents to israel. the prime minister has produced an apocalyptic terms and the rhetoric makes it easy to adopt that position. the iranian intent is to a breakup capacity and they couldn't dare to hit israel because they destroyed our solemn, 2 million palestinians and ensure that part of their country was abbreviated. how do you think the predominate feeling among security experts within israel tends to be one way or the other? >> in previous cases, those on the iranian past decade than with other threats reportedly dealt with by israel, we've never seen this kind of discord we've seen in the past year. what do you think it is that it's changed? we hear so many voices coming out of israel, discussing not only politics and decisions mentioned, the possible decisions, but the sec
is barack obama? >> the best way to describe its as the -- it is the viral heart of the internet. a discussion with buzzfeed editor on "q & a." >> the house passed a defense sequestration bill that would provide -- require the president to provide cuts in defense set to expire in january. this is one hour, 20 minutes. mr. speaker, you know, under current law there will be a $110 billion across-the-board cuts known as sequester that will be imposed on this country on january 2, 2013, resulting in a 10% reduction in the department of defense programs and an 8% reduction in certa domestic programs as well. in may of this year the house passed a bill to deal with this, that was the sequester replacement reconciliation act. and what this legislation would do, it would replace that sequester for 2013 with commonsense spendinguts and reforms. unfortunately we have seen a lack of leadership both over in the senate and at the white house. the senate failed to act on this legislation. the senate, where all goodills go to die, sooo with this, or in any sequester replacement bill. so today t
the one i'd seen because the title was "obama votes against israel". this is an article dated may 29, 2010. and it points out in the article that the white house sided with israel's enemies, something that this nation didn't normally do, and basically demanding that israel disclose all their nukes. well, those who study the bible, biblical history, may recall that king hezekiah was a very good king in israel and things went pretty well but isiah was sent to confront hezekiah about what he had done with visiters who had come from babylon. and god knew what had been done but isiah asked and hezekiah explained and this is the new paraphrase version, but in essence he said, you know, all these wonderful leaders came over from babylon, so i showed them all of our treasure and if you get into the strict interpretations, translation, he basically says, i showed them our armory, all of our defenses. and isiah points out, you fool, you're going to lose the country because you've done this. no matter what point in history you are, when a nation shows all its defenses to its enemies that information
